Raspberry Pi 2: A Tiny Computer

Raspberry Pi 3 is out now, it has wifi and bluetooth built-in which would save some money for users. The built-in bluetooth and wifi are not very good, you still have to buy external dongles if you want to stream movies from youtube or videos from NAS server in your house if the router is upstairs and TV is downstairs. OSMC A2DP is working perfectly with streaming audio from smart phones, iPads.

Raspberry Pi 2 rev B now is the latest tiny computer that works. I just ordered one so I can play with it. Actually, I’m going to use it for a work project. I’ll document the progress as I go. Materials and information needed: Raspberrypi.org, Windows 10 IoT, and the RPi itself.

Normal people would use Raspberry Pi 2 as Home Media Center. People would buy off the shelves Roku, Chromecast, Firestick or Apple TV to stream all their media from the internet, smart phones and tablets, but all of them have limitations on what they can be used for.

Raspberry Pi is new, but growing very quickly. There are tons of applications out there for the Pi, you would be amazed what a little computer can do, from monitoring the house to controlling robots… The first one to get people excited to buy this $35 tiny computer is the Home Media Center. So the new Raspberry Pi 3 just being on the market with wifi and bluetooth embedded, it’s even cheaper and less work involved to configure everything.

For Raspberry Pi, there are 2 popular Kodi base media center: OSMC and OpenELEC. I chose OSCM because it can be used as Airplay and Pairing bluetooth easily and successfully.

Airplay: Mac El Capitan using iTunes, iPhones, iPads with IOS 8 or older, audio and videos. IOS 9 is not working.
